Volunteer opportunity description


Following on from the successful 2013 summer deployment of Ambassadors at eleven locations, we are excited to announce that we will be deploying ambassadors at three locations over the Christmas period.

These are:

  • St Pancras International
  • Covent Garden
  • Gatwick Airport


Ambassadors will be deployed over two blocks of shifts, and there are 2 shifts per day:

  • Dec 20-23 (Friday-Monday)
  • Dec 27-30 (Friday-Monday)


We are looking for volunteers who can commit to blocks of four consecutive shifts. The shift times for each location are indicated below:

St Pancras International

Shift times at St Pancras are dependent on the arrivals schedule for Eurostar. Following feedback during the summer 2013 deployment we are piloting different shift times for weekdays/weekends in the afternoon:

  • Weekday shift: 9.45-14.00 and 13.45-18.00 (Mon/Fri)
  • Weekend shift: 9.45-14.00 and 14.30-18.30 (Sat/Sun)

(Please note there is an arrival at 9.57 seven days a week and one at 10.00 on weekdays.)

Eurostar will provide a £5 M&S voucher to cover refreshments, and travel expenses (z 1-6 return) to be claimed back from the Greater London Authority.

Covent Garden

Ambassadors will be based inside the covered market area at the Eastern end.

Shift times: 10.00-14.10 and 13.50-18.00

Refreshments and travel (z 1-6 return) will be covered by Covent Garden.

Gatwick Airport

Ambassadors will be deployed at both terminals.

Shift times: 8.00-12.10 and 11.50-16.00

Gatwick will provide vouchers for refreshments and tickets for free parking on the days you volunteer. Travel expenses up to £25 per day will be paid by the airport.
